Ten years after shark attack, Hamilton still inspiring others

LIHUE, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Ten years ago today, 13-year-old Bethany Hamilton was surfing in waters near her childhood home when she was attacked by tiger shark.

The shark took her left arm, and she lost nearly sixty percent of her blood during the attack. Amazingly, she was back on her surfboard less than a month later.

Tonight at 10 p.m. on KGMB and KHNL, Jim Mendoza travels to Kauai for an exclusive and inspirational interview with Hamilton as she tells Hawaii News Now about her plans for the future and how her faith has helped her overcome her injury.
